International Genetically Engineered Machines Competition
The iGEM Competition brings together a group of 5 to 10 high school and undergraduate students each summer to construct a genetic system and then present it to the wider synthetic biology community. iGEM immerses talented and motivated students in a dense hands-on research experience. By working on a project that can reach completion within the 3-5 month work period students see the full range of project conception, implementation, and the presentation of results in a conference-like setting.
UC Berkeley has housed an iGEM team for the past 3 years and received numerous awards during the Jamboree. Students interested in participating should visit this site.
More information on our teams' work from 2006 and 2007 are available online. The main iGEM website provides additional links for information and the pages of other iGEM teams.
